REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

I was just wondering if any of you do anything strange for the game. I go to the same friends house every kickoff and we set up a Sean Taylor Memorial in front of the TV set. I lay out the #21 towel from the game after he died. There are the same $20 bill and $1 bill that have been on the towel on the 2 and 1 respectively. A 75 anniversary shirt that I got while I was playing flag football on FedEX Field, WHILE DEXTER MANLEY was watching the game. Two of the car window flags. The Gibbs throwback solid gold "R" redskins hat. The Sports Specialties hat from back in the day that used to match the Starter jackets. It started off as the towel and a candle but now it has evolved into this pre-ordained necessity amonst my friends. (In our defense, we started this the game after Teezy died and so far we've lost three times, the Bills, Seahawks, and Giants)
Anyway, just trying to se if other fans do similar things. Some people sit in the same seats or wear the same clothes. What are your wacky game, pregame, and post game rituals. And let's just assume massive amounts of beers fellas, be creative lol

i have 3 jersey's, a cooley, washington and portis... if we win a game ill wear the same jersey on gameday until we lose, once we lose the jersey is rotated along, not nearly as elaborate as your scheme, but thats what i do.

I do pretty much the same thing with D. Green, Portis, Springs, and Campbell. I've been on Green since the Saints game. Hopefully, I won't have to switch it out for a while.

Anything more than Jerseys would be too much for me lol

I make a prediction here in the prediction thread (I didn't the first week and have been since that first loss and we've won) I also come here and post in the gameday thread. Seems to be lucky as well. I also make sure to wear my ST jersey to class every Monday!

I've worn the same Redskin shorts, muscle shirt, hat, and watch since New Orleans. There's other Skins stuff I want to wear but I'm not changing as long as we continue to win.

I watch the movies "Gladiator" or "Any Given Sunday" the night before since the 2005 season

Yes,
basically left hand only, (keeps right hand free for consumables)and index and middle finger. Right hand only if the skins are in DEEP sh....
You see, this is a science, not some nonsense, Witchcraft, or Shamanism (although a smattering of Santeria has been known to extend effective field goal range) founded in empirical research, and brought to bear through proven time tested means.
1) finger crossed as described earler
2) Hat, JOE classic "R" in Burgundy
3) Jersey, currently Portis 75th in white
If things do not go well, it really gets messy

Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

I always wear either my T21 jersey or my Cooley jersey, along with my black R redskins hat (the one Joe used to wear). I can never miss a play, if I miss a play I feel like I am downgrading our chances of winning. But yeah that's pretty much it, I keep it simple.

Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

lol im not one to think anything at i do outside the stadium will help our skins win but the people i watch games with are just like you all.

if your outside smoking a cigarette and something good happens you cant come back in until the "mojo" wears off.

if your outside and something bad happens you cant got back out.

countless hours spent determining what jersey will make the skins win.

ive even seen someone not allowed out of the bathroom because good things started happening on the field. now that would suck stuck in the john when the skins are doing things.

i am not a "ritual" believer but others seem to enjoy it so i follow along to a point, i def wouldnt have stayed in the bathroom.

oh actually i do have a weekly ritual, sudden screaming outbursts at the TV with a profane laced tirade using words i didnt even know i knew.

go skins!

Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

I used to do the jersey thing and wear the same one until we lost. Portis, Campbell, Washington etc...

But this year I was out of town with clients for our first game and did not wear any gear. Week two I put on my Skins hoodie with a Skins tee under it and Skins hat, and when I got reay for the game I forgot to start with a jersey. So since then I have been wearing the same things. Also I play Hail to the Redskins on my phone everytime we score just like they do at FedEx.
